The Gambling Commission (GC) has been ranked 87th in the 2024 UK’s Best Workplaces for large companies, according to benchmarking business Great Place to Work.

Having placed 76th the year prior, the UK regulator dropped 11 places – though the number of large companies in the list has increased to 105 from 87.

Great Place to Work’s methodology splits firms into four groups; small organisations with between 10-50 employees, medium firms with 51-200, large companies with 201-1,000 and super large with 1,001+ employees.

According to Great Place to Work, the GC has 364 UK-based employees.

Great Place to Work detailed some of the key responses from GC employees as part of the research process to award companies a ranking.

Responding to the statement “Taking everything into account, I would say this a great place to work”, 89% of the employees at the GC said “Yes” compared to 54% at a “Typical UK-based company”.

The GC scored 97% across four different questions; the company being a physically safe place to work, people are treated fairly regardless of their sexual orientation and race and management would fire people only as a last resort.

Andrew Rhodes, GC CEO, said it was an achievement to make the Great Place to Work list in 2023 and highlighted it wouldn’t have been possible to repeat its success without the hard work of the employees.

Rhodes said: “To have made it onto the list of the UK’s Best Workplaces last year was a big moment for us as we continue to make the Gambling Commission the best place you could work.

“Our mission has been to build on that success, but we know that isn’t easy to achieve and wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and dedication from all colleagues here at the Commission,” he concluded.

No other gambling-affiliated business made the rankings this year, with the top super large business in the UK being named as IT firm Cisco.

To be eligible to make the Great Place to Work list, organisations must be certified to operate in the UK and meet the minimum 65% Trust Index threshold.

Employees also respond to over 60 survey questions in which they explain how the organisation is a great place to work.

The majority (85%) of the evaluation is based on employee experiences when it comes to “trust and reaching their full human potential as part of their organisation, no matter who they are or what they do”.

The remaining 15% is based on employees’ daily experiences of categories including innovation, company values and how effective are their leaders.
